Anydesk Multiple Access


A remote client can be requested by entering the AnyDesk ID or Alias, displayed in the ID label of the Main Window of the remote client. Clients to request sessions with are also available from the Speed Dial or Address Book. A session request must be accepted manually on the remote side to start. For automatic access, see: Unattended Access. Anyone knowing the password and your AnyDesk ID has full access to your computer. A password which exceeds at least 12 characters is highly recommended. AnyDesk also supports two-factor authentication for best security. Always double-check when a third party. AnyDesk now checks the Windows Registry for settings provided via Windows Domain Group Policies. This can only be disabled on Custom Clients. Multiple password for Unattented Access: Unattended Access now allows the setup of multiple secondary passwords. Each of the password can be bound to different permissions. Well, individuals and teams can remotely access their own computers and shared computers with any device using Splashtop Business Access. All remote sessions are encrypted with TLS and 256-bit AES. Access is further protected by the device authentication, two-step verification, and multiple 2nd-level password options.

Remote management applications are pretty popular these days and one of the options available is the pcAnywhere Remote Control application which is able to connect you to a PC running pcAnywhere.


In a nutshell, the application offers control over a PC that's running Symantec's pcAnywhere server. As a portable application, there is no requirement to install this program, making it perfect to carry around on a portable drive like a USB thumb drive or a memory card.

Though pcAnywhere Remote Control may seem like a rather basic freeware utility, you are able to add multiple hosts. You may run your remote control instance in full screen.

Even though pcAnywhere is no longer in active development, this little client application performs well with systems that still run the remote control server.

Privacy enabled

Screen Privacy is an option to secure or conceal the content of a session by disabling the monitor.
The screen privacy feature is available for Windows 8/10, macOS and Linux.Privacy mode during a session disables the monitor on the remote side.The screen contents are hidden for anyone with physical access to the remote device.
Input and sound from the remote side is also blocked during privacy mode until either the session ends or privacy is disabled.

The state of the privacy mode is displayed in the address field.
(Indicated by a crossed eye in the monitor).

Privacy Mode hides the screen contents and blocks user input at the remote machine.
It only disables the remote display(s), and doesn’t hide any data or actions.
Once activated Screen Privacy is stored per ID and is persistent across sessions.
See Settings

Anydesk Multiple Access


A request to enter Privacy Mode, requested explicitly (from the menu) or automatically.
May be rejected at the backend for various reasons:

  1. The backend client is not installed.
  2. The backend client does not allow using Privacy Mode.
  3. The backend client does not support Privacy Mode (Windows 7 or outdated client version).
  4. The backend client is not able to enter Privacy Mode due to missing privileges required by the operating system.
  5. The backend client is not able to enter Privacy Mode due to missing hardware support.
  6. The backend client has the same ID as the frontend client.

Multiple sessions

In case multiple users are connected to the same client and at least two of them request Privacy Mode:

  1. Privacy Mode is entered on first request (if possible),
  2. Privacy Mode should be left either in case
a. the last user that requested Privacy Mode requested to leave it.
b. the last user that requested Privacy Mode closed the corresponding session.


Under certain circumstances, Privacy Mode may not work (or stops working) due to OS security architecture.
Thus, either input may not be blocked, or the screen contents are not hidden, or both:

  1. During UAC dialog
  2. After sending Ctrl+Alt+Del
  3. After logout
  4. During user switch
  5. After the desktop has been locked
Note: Leaving those screens is supposed to restore Privacy Mode, thus the remote screen is hidden again and the remote user's input be blocked.

Known Issues

On Windows 8 and 10 Privacy Mode will be left in case the frontend user switches to a monitor with rotated screen.
It is restored, when switching to a non-rotated monitor (even the contents of the rotated screen are hidden).
